If you want a cup of coffee before noon, go to Market Square. You will see people standing around a small kiosk - this is where locals meet and have their morning coffee.

The Church of the Holy Cross is beautiful medieval stone church.

If you want to explore World Heritage behind the scenes, try one the digital heritage routes. If you are more to sports, I recommend our national game called pesäpallo. Local women´s team Fera play national league in Otanlahti stadium.
